    What is the difference between a preacher, a missionary and an evangelist?

    Your thoughts?

    Missionaries usually are low key to get along in their surroundings, evangelists often have large audience and it is expected of them and preachers usually have a pa system to back them up.

    In the other area, probably quite similar as they all attempt to draw people to God.

    From my limited understanding of God's Word, it would appear that a preacher (assuming you mean pastor) stays with one particular, established flock of God. The other 2 differ in our mindset probably more with the location of their church planting ministry. Normally we consider an evangelist who goes cross-cultural to be a missionary, don't we? Personally I understand them to be the same thing.

    A preacher would usually be the Pastor, A Missionary is someone who fufills all three roles overseas, and the evangalist is one of the offices that God gifts people in to serve the church, along with being a Teacher.

    I think they are just about the same just in different places.
